1 water-tempered Special Order Japanese WW2 sword by Amahide. This fine antique Japanese sword would make an important acquisition for any collection.
This sword bears the inscription on the nakago ‘Commemorating 1941 Departure to the Front — Made for Nagata Chihiro’.
Signed by the smith ‘Amahide Fukuda of Seki — 1941’.
This is a traditionally-made sword—note the complex hada/grain. This sword was made with Tamahagane (Japanese sand steel).
The blade measures 26 13/16" (68.2cm) from blade tip to notch in the blade spine. As mentioned, this is a traditional gendai sword--there are no arsenal or Showa stamps on the nakago.
The hamon is very complex—this is a exceptional sword.
This sword is in excellent condition. The blade has occasional smaller nicks and an occasional spot of micro-pitting. The hamon and boshi are perfectly healthy.
